Friday Night Leftovers- Saturday Version (Again)

  • Daylight savings time still sucks.  I cannot believe an HOUR has this much influence.
  • But we are working on her sleep and hopefully that will soon improve the quality and duration of MY sleep.
  • Elizabeth and I are heading to a big local craft fair after she wakes up from her nap.  I am not looking for anything specific, just going with thoughts of potential Christmas presents in mind.
  • Last night, it took Matt an hour to drive the last two miles of his commute.  Luckily for him, he had picked up our dinner before he got stuck in traffic and they had included a fork.  Of course, now he says that his car smells like Thai food.
  • I love Thai food.  Particularly when it doesn’t have roaches in it.
  • Barb recommended The Happiest Toddler on the Block to me.  I got it from the library and I liked it.  I did a lot of the stuff already, but I tried a few new things and they worked really well.
  • I solved the car seat problem, at least for now.  And it cost me $1.98.  Graco couldn’t do it, but I solved it with a dog collar that I bought at Wal-Mart.
  • I bought the smallest dog collar available, the toy size, and I clip that around her straps above the buckle she unbuckles.  Not only does it keep her from getting the straps apart if she undoes the buckle, but it actually keeps her from undoing the buckle because it holds the straps together.  It is easy to put on and easy to take off.  I imagine eventually she’ll learn to get that buckle open too, but I think it will take her a lot longer, particularly since I clip it with the buckle part underneath.
  • My camera is taking SOOO long to download.  I was going to show you a picture of the car seat solution.  So we’ll see what happens first, the baby wakes up from her nap or the picture downloads off the camera.  I’d put my money on the baby.
  • Well, look at that, I beat her and got the picture up before she woke up.  And on that note, pictures have become more and more difficult to upload lately, it took me a half an hour to get that one up.  Does anyone know what is going on?  Do I have to clear a cache in WordPress or something?
